Our Final Invention
- Artificial Intelligence and the End of the Human Era
- By: James Barrat
- Narrated by: Gary Dana
- Length: 9 hrs and 16 mins
Artificial Intelligence helps choose what books you buy, what movies you see, and even who you date. It puts the "smart" in your smartphone and soon it will drive your car. It makes most of the trades on Wall Street, and controls vital energy, water, and transportation infrastructure. But Artificial Intelligence can also threaten our existence. In as little as a decade, AI could match and then surpass human intelligence. Corporations and government agencies are pouring billions into achieving AI’s Holy Grail - human-level intelligence.
Great read - poor narration

Good points made
The book covers lots of interesting parts of AI though can be a bit repetitive at times. The self referential elements of the writing are useful to gaining a bigger picture of how previously mentioned information builds to later sections. Very well narrated which makes a huge difference for me in an audiobook. Worth a go if you’re interested in the topic.
